“2nd day in Berlin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I stayed in this hotel many times. but this time i was was a bit disappointed. I paid 90 Euros. Compare where i was stayed 1st night - Hilton, this hotel was cheap with no facilities. Breakfast was ok :) Staff helpful. Nearest station is Frankfurt Alle - easy to get Aleksandre platz, just 10 -15 min :)

This hotel i choose only because i had auction in Estrella hotel just 3 stops from hotel, also to get airport Schonefeld is fast, just 30 min :)

Shops facilities is limited, just one Shopping centre near by.

Hotel has buisness centre, room was clean, bathroom a bit small.. otherwise stay was wonderfull.

Was there for new year's weekend with friends. Rooms are very small, old and not clean. Doublebeds are too small for two people! The hostel is right next to the train line and you can hear it. I woul definitely not recommend this hotel, especially not for families.
People at the reception weren't nice.

Room Tip: Rooms for 2 are really small. Doublebeds are too small for 2 people.

To begin, the room were given in the "hostel" was about 10ft by about 12ft for 3 people in single beds. There was nowhere to store our luggage or items so our items had to be strewn around.

Secondly, I have never in my life encountered staff who really did not care or know what customer service actually means. We complained 3 times about the fact our room was damp that spread further on the floor each day to the point when you walked on it you had to wear shoes otherwise it would soak through your socks. One particular member of staff was very rude. She kept saying "speak to the housemaster", "it's nothing to do with us" "there's nothing we can do" and then told us that the housemaster was waiting for us when in fact we had to wait about for them to turn up which they did not do.

We finally spoke to a member of staff who listened and on the 4th day she spoke to the manager who moved us from the room a cleaner, slightly better room that wasn't damp.

Lastly, there was a used condom still in the room we initially had hanging from the ceiling which had been there since before we checked in there.

This is not a hostel. There's no kitchen. No storage room. There's so many more better actual hostels in the area and I haven't ever felt the need to review a place (unless it was really good) but this place was infuriating.

The manager gave us 1/2 the money back for the time spent in the initial room which wasn't bad.

The initial bedroom we had, within hours of us being moved out, had been ripped apart by workers and the room was being heavily aired out which makes me think it was never fit for purpose in the first place.

Please avoid this hotel and "hostel".

When you only care about price and relatively good connection to the city centre of Berlin, Georghof is for you. Apart from terrible noise coming from the train lines next to the windows, the hotel itself has rather limited comfort - baby-sized pillows, no A/C, no soap in the shower, no light in the shower and uncomfortable beds layout in the room. The staff was indifferent, not paying too much attention to the newly arrived guests.

Room Tip: If you have to stay there, take rooms at the street side and NOT at the railway side.

For a budget place this was quite close to everything we needed. At first was a bit worried about the location but it's a short ride to alexanderplatz and anywhere else you want to go.
The hotel itself is just old and needs a revamp rooms are ok size wise and you have wifi but there's an old smoke stench and we were in a non smoking room but you could smell it all throughout the place. We stayed here three nights and were only in the room to sleep so it was fine but if we were to return to Berlin we'd probably want to spend a bit more and get something nicer.

My brothers and I spent one night at the Hostel Georghof during our recent trip to Germany. We had no problems. Our flight was arriving at Schonefeld Airport late and I knew we probably wouldn't get to our hotel until around 23:30, so I wanted to book a room somewhere that had 24-hour reception, and Hostel Georghof did. We only needed a cheap place to stay one night, and that's what Hostel Georghof was. The rooms were simple, but the beds were clean and I had no trouble sleeping in them. We shared the bathrooms and showers with everyone else on the floor, but we didn't have to wait long. Our room was not facing the railroad tracks, and we didn't hear any trains coming by. The neighborhood looked a little bit dirty, but not bad. The Frankfurter Allee U-Bahn station is close to the hostel (the S-Bahn station is a little further, but not much). You have to leave a 30 Euro deposit for the key, but they give it back to you when you bring back the key at check out. The Hostel Georghof is everything it is supposed to be: a cheap place to stay with a clean bed and a warm shower. I got exactly what I expected from this hostel.

It was really really bad. It was expensive, not well located. It was the last one available, so we didn't have a choice. It was dirty and there were no curtains at the windows were completly riped up! The shared bathrooms were DISGUSTING !! There were water leak from the celling. It smelled bad and the staff was very unfriendly. I wouldn't go back there ever !!
